Idea was conceived by NRCS employee George Martin in East Texas

First Contest held in East Texas in Early ’90s

Due to the increasing importance of wildlife to farmers and ranchers in Texas, by 2000s, it had grown into a statewide contest, with curriculum, participants and lots of support.

It continues to grow in popularity and is

unique in the state because of all of the

entities involved.
